Location – First of all, you need to consider the location of your restaurant. If the customers are going to be outdoors, then you need to consider the weather charges and other conditions your furniture will be exposed to. In addition, the furniture you select for outdoors should also be movable. On the other hand, if your restaurant is completely indoors then you need not bother for the weather elements, and you have the complete liberty to give importance to style.

Space – the next factor that you need to consider is the availability of space. It is assured that you would not want a closely packed restaurant with very less space for the customers as well as the staff to move around nor you would want to waste a lot of space.

The style of the furniture you select should blend with the type of restaurant you have and the ambience. For instance, wrought iron chairs would simply look awkward in a fine dining restaurant or fully upholstered chairs would look out of place in a fast food restaurant. Also consider the practicality of the furniture.
